Bemis Lecture Series: From the linked website: “A unique tradition was established in 1892, in the rural town of Lincoln, Massachusetts. In his will, native Lincolnite George Bemis left the town funds to build “a new Town Hall in which shall be a room of sufficient capacity and proper construction for public lectures…and to provide an annual course of public lectures in said Hall of an instructive and elevating character.” Bemis Hall, the home of the Bemis Lecture Series, was dedicated in May, 1892 as the Town House. The building was designed by Boston architect W. Langdon Warren. At that time, the first floor of the building comprised a selectmen’s office, town clerk’s office, a kitchen, a smaller meeting hall and a jail cell. The larger hall on the second floor was designed to seat 385 people. This building was commonly known as Town Hall for many years and only officially became Bemis Hall in the 1980s, after most municipal functions had relocated to the former Center School building.
